Here's my handout for The Purpose of Covenants and Ordinances.  I really liked the idea of incorporating the thought that we take the Lord's name upon us when we make covenants with Him.  All images came from the image files on LDS.org.  The words are the lyrics to the song What Have I Done with His Name by Kenneth Cope.
